Punch left over on the 4k pyramid and 19.9 av. on the L4, also a pyramid—on rate. Ascendere e discendere.

Few things came up over the last week which got in the way of my training, only rowed about every other day. Felt the mental burnout start to creep in as well. Completed a total of 22 weeks, made it to 19.9spm in L4 with Ref pace of 1:41. Started with Ref pace 1:42 with baseline 2K PB of 6:48. This morning I decided to re-test my 2K:

8K warmup

2K

6:40.0

500: 1:40.2
1000:1:40.4
1500:1:40.3
2000: 1:39.1

4K cooldown

Overall very satisfied with first run through with the WP. I don't think I quite peaked physically particularly with L1 and L2, was overly conservative with L1 pacing to start and for the first few months. Plan on cutting back on rowing for a little while and mixing in some cross training type stuff mostly for a mental break.

Ken, congrats on the 6:40/2k. Lot of work for 8” eh? Thanks for getting down to it, sticking with it, and letting da plan speak for itself. Good luck in all your endeavors.

I agree - great focus and discipline and a great result. It was really interesting to watch the progression.
"A change is as good as a holiday" though- these plans ask a lot of us.

Indeed good result, looking at your L1 wirk, I would not guess this time. Which shows that overly pushing yourself is not needed.
Congrats.

Did a 176-180-176-180 based on reference pace 1:59 (after setting a new PR of 7:54.9 some weeks ago).

Target paces for 16/18/20/22 SPM: 2:29/2:24/2:19/2:14
Target distance excl. warm up and cool down: 8313 meter.
Measured distance excl. WU/CD: 8274 meter.
Had a lot of cardiac drift during the session. First 22 SPM interval:137 BPM. Second 22 SPM interval: 149 BPM. So more endurance training is needed.

Great PB, Allan, and the grit to face up to the revised paces. :cry: :D. HR should creep (or even jump) on the 180s, with both prescribed rate and pace steadily increasing and only length of segment decreasing.

Jackarabbit, I always love reading what you write because you have a very elegant and unusual way of putting your words together.

However, the downside is that it quite often escapes me what you are trying to tell. The last sentence of yours is in that category. Could you elaborate?

Thank you for the kind words. It was psychologically important to me to get below 8 minutes. (Old PB was 8.02.)

Sorry for the downside. I decline to elaborate except to note that walking to the top of a hill makes physiological demands that walking halfway up and returning to the bottom does not. Walking halfway up, returning to the bottom, and then doing a complete ascent is the effort plot of the 176-180. Doing it twice is just hill repeats. What other reason can there be for you to compare HR after the conclusion of the rate 22 segments and characterize the difference as attributable to HR creep? Intelligent choice of datapoints ime.
